Fiscal Year: 2007
Title: Development of Very Long Wave Infrared Detectors Based on Type-II Strained Layer Superlattices
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: W9113M-08-C-0020
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

We will develop very long wave infrared focal plane arrays (VLWIR FPAs) from Type-II Strained Layer Superlattices (SLS) for ballistic missile defense applications, by combining QmagiQ's skills in FPA design, fabrication and test, with the University of New Mexico's expertise in the MBE growth and characterization of InAs/GaSb SLS. Cutoff wavelengths upto ~ 15 microns will be targeted. In Phase 1, UNM will optimize growth of the SLS photodiode layers. QmagiQ will fabricate and test photodiodes of different sizes to quantify material quality and develop a good passivation technique. In Phase 2, the recipes will be further advanced and applied to develop and deliver 1-color VLWIR imaging arrays and, quality permitting, 2-color LWIR/VLWIR arrays. This project will leverage the MDA MSTAR program at UNM, if awarded.
